Clarion is a lively “University Town” located in the middle of the county along the banks of Piney Reservoir on the Clarion River. It’s easily reached by car via Interstate 80 (exit 62) from Pittsburgh, Cleveland, New York City, Buffalo, and Erie. There are forest-covered mountains in every direction, which makes it a very scenic place in all four seasons.
Popular for photography, bird watching, hiking, fishing and picnicking with nearly 850 acres of lakes, wetlands and meadows surrounded by woods. Over 150 species of birds and waterfowl have been identified.
